Pro-choice advocates rally outside Jonesborough courthouse

Local

Pro-choice advocates held rallies across the nation Tuesday in response to abortion bans recently passed in several states.

Some advocates came out to the courthouse in Jonesborough.

“People are going to have autonomy, they’re going to have free will, and they are going to make their own choices,” said protester Carleen Claybaker. “And sometimes the choices aren’t the best ones that could be made. But that is how things need to be allowed.”

Those who participated in the demonstrations called it a “day of action” against what they call attacks on the roe versus wade decision.
